St Asaph Parish Church – A glimpse into its reordering journey.

We welcome you to view this video link The Journey to very briefly experience the church’s transformation that has come about by the recent reordering project.

The church is very gradually returning to a form of normality, with Sunday (9.30am) and Thursday (10.00am) services having resumed. The church is also open on Thursday afternoon 12.00pm to 4.30pm for private prayer and for visiting. The pandemic restrictions and guidance remain in place, in accordance with the current Welsh Government guidelines.

St Asaph Parish Church has been restructured and renovated internally thanks to the vision of our architect Mr Graham Holland (Graham Holland Associated) and the attention to detail of the contractor Grosvenor Construction Ltd.

All this has been possible thanks to the generosity of the Welsh Government; National Churches Trust; Gwynt-y-Mor Wind farms, and Church Fields Trust (Buckley). St Asaph community also generously supported the amazing transformation of a medieval building into a practical, modern facility to be celebrated and enjoyed.

There has been universal welcome and approval of the changes to this sacred building, which have contributed positively to the atmosphere for worship and community use alike.

Call in; it will be our privilege to welcome you.
